Kiwi Gym Fun classes are designed for girls and boys aged 5-8yrs to learn to safely execute and develop gymnastic skills.
These classes are designed to be fun, challenging and help develop physical skills and confidence that can be transferred to any sport. This program is focused around the seven fundamental movement patterns:
SPRING (1-2 feet take-off technique for springing off beat-boards/Jumps along Tumble Track Trampoline)
LANDINGS (Off boxes, vault, beams tumble track and mini trampoline)
SWING (On the Bars)
ROTATION (Forward/Backward Rolls/Cartwheels)
LOCOMOTION (Jumping/Skipping/Chasses/Running/Hurdle Steps)
STATICS (Front/Rear Support Holds/Handstands)
MANIPULATIVE SKILLS (Hand-Eye Co-ordination): Using the Rope/Ball and Hoop
These classes begin with a combined group game/warm up, stretch and conditioning sequence.
Children are then split into groups of 6-8 based on the Kiwi Gym Fun level they are currently working on and rotate around 3-4 apparatus stations per session. Apparatus Stations include Vault (and Tumble Track Trampoline), Bar (and Rings), Beam, Floor & Ball, Hoop, Rope to develop hand-eye coordination.
Throughout the term children work through their Kiwi Gym Fun level. Most beginner young gymnasts start at level one and then each term, progressively work through to level six. The higher the level the more challenging the skills/routines become sometimes it can take a couple of terms for gymnasts to achieve the 8/10 competent mark on each of their skills before they can move on to the next level.
